    Last week, we included in a "five moves that should be made" item for SportingNews.com that the Colts should sign Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill to an offer sheet.

    Apparently, the item somehow morphed into a report that the Colts planned to do so.

    We've since learned -- and confirmed -- that the Colts have had zero contact with McNeill. So with only five days and change remaining before the expiration of the deadline for signing restricted free agents to offer sheets, it's highly unlikely that the Colts will make a move.

    In the remaining period of time, they'd have to reach out to McNeill, bring him in for a visit, negotiate a contract, consider whether to include a poison pill aimed at keeping the Chargers from matching the offer, and then work the thing out. Meanwhile, the Colts are otherwise getting ready for the draft.

    It therefore would be a shock if the Chargers fire up the engines five weeks after the period for talking to McNeill started -- and only five days before the window slams shut.

    "That's not true!!! It's a lie! The Colts did TOO have contact with Marcus McNeill!!! I got the news off my high speed sports wire (which just had the belts replaced and had a new squirrel installed!)

    Don't hang up, San Diego! Give me a call, Rancho Bernardo! Talk to me, Escondido! I'm lonely and nobody will play with me!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!"

    So we've finally reached that pinnacle where banter on sports forums leads to new articles in the actual sports media. :lol:

    I thought we were at the pinnacle when people actually started believing what hacksaw says.

    I just don't get how he gets so many listeners

    Sadly, it has become obvious that there is not much distance between the two.

    Not surprised to see Hack is accurate in Hacksaw.

    Good to kno, I dont beleive INDY ever floated this rumor.

    Also good to kno only a few more days left with the potential risk of losing one of our RFAs. Can they still be dealt draft day?? MAC VJax or Floyd?? Or Sproles for that matter?
